共Received 23 May 2003; revised 11 June 2004; accepted 24 June 2004兲
Reciprocity, energy conservation, and time-reversal invariance are three general properties of the
wave fields that imply algebraic scattering matrix properties. In this paper, these scattering matrix
properties are established for waveguides when evanescent modes are taken into account. The
situations correspond to guided acoustic pressure waves in fluids and Lamb waves in solids treated
with the same formalism. The relations between the three properties verified by the scattering matrix
are then discussed, and it is found that, as soon as two properties are verified, the third is also
verified. © 2004 Acoustical Society of America. 关DOI: 10.1121/1.1786293兴
